If it's new build,all the mains cable should already be there.Regarding the earthing system you need to look at the incoming supply.If it's commercial it should also be 3 phase.The separate fuse boards,i would take a separate armoured to each DB depending on the location of each DB.

Id find out the total demand and work out from there what size tails you need.

Is each office having its own meter? If so you wont be able to feed off one henley block. Each meter will supply a DB. Depending on what containment you use the cable feeding the DB's might not have to be SWA. It will more than likely be TNCS unless it is stuck in a field miles from anywhere.

Why can't I get jobs like this!! Do you want a subby to help you out? Good rates.

Also, if you have to get the supply in, get TP-N 100A per phase should be plenty.
