all I got to say is backup back up oh yeah and back up. if you have a line tester I would test the lines in the new building, any UPS and/or generators need to be tested.

If it only a relocation, then the important things to check (in addition to Phish's comments) is power ports at each desk, Network/phone connections. Rack space in the IT room.
There should be some good relocation checklists on the Net
Makesure each user logons and shutdown correctly at the old place. This should safe all the domain profile details correctly.
Check for mapped network drives that use an IP address instead of Name (do u have DHCP or manual IP?) DHCP might allocated different ips and stuff up connections etc...
Make a proper network port layout map from the old place, and ensure it is similarlly hooked up at the new place... Do you have load balancing etc setup? DFS?
I think basically, take everything offline and shutdown, then make the move.... Hopefully when u get back online, everything should be as it is
