A wireless network will be somewhat easier to install since you don’t need to route cables all over, but if you are starting with a new office it’s not that big of an advantage. With a wireless network you need to be concerned about interference with signal caused by things like metal objects (including wall framing and pipes), walls, floors, microwaves, etc. You rarely achieve the rated speed on a wireless network. Also, it can be a pain to eliminate dead zones.
A wired network will also be more secure due to the need for a physical connection. The speeds will be much more predictable as well.
