Should I use a client/server network or a peer-to-peer network?

I am creating a network within three buildings that are all close together. Why should I choose a client/server network over a peer-to-peer network?

That depends on numerous factors. If you have more than 15 total clients to connect, I would suggest a client/server network. Please seek a local networking design engineer to aid in your planning.
