Whatever you run will be obsolete at some point. If you really want to
future-proof your installation, consider running the Ethernet cables
inside pipe, so that at some time in the future you can use it to pull
its replacement, whatever that will be. I haven't done this, so can't
vouch for how much extra work it will be.

I expect state law requires that someone you hire be licensed, etc.

Perhaps someone on this list could make a bid?
