When considering physical placement of equipment, keep in mind both security and ease of use. It may seem like a good idea to put a new laser printer in the middle of an office, so it is equally inconvenient to everybody. Also if engineering shares the floor with the lunchroom, why would you make the heavy printing engineering group walk halfway down the floor, when almost nobody will be accessing the printer from the lunchroom?
Physical security is also an issue. Regardless of how secure your NOS is if the server can be accessed physically, it isnt secure. This must be considered along with environmental conditions.
