Prewire Retrofit on a home with kitchen remodel only

This customer had a kitchen remodel happening and decided to add 12 zones of structured wire while the kitchen was opened up (no wall, just studs).  The picture shows the first floor with structured wire (blue wire) moving up one wall up through  first floor ceiling into a closet in a second floor room.  We located the panel in the room above the kitchen for ease of getting all wire throughout the home. I will post more pictures of this retrofit prewire shortly.
