I liked  raised  flooring....     you can  clean the room up  fast  by stashing  stuff in the non critical to airflow  areas!  ----see

we  were  lucky  when  comshare  of an arbor    division on  phx    moved out   where  they  designed  IBM channel interfaces  for  xerox sigma 9s
We  got their  space next to  us   and bought  their  their  flooring  rather  than them  shipping  back  to ann arbor Mich.  to put  our  HP  stuff on.
best  thing  ever  did   it  kept  things neat, clean and  provided  xtra storage.

I cannot imagine difficult it would be to run S/360 era cables in
overhead trays. Many are an inch or more in diameter.
