    What are you going to be documenting? Network diagram, standards, policies, and procedures come to mind, but what - specifically - are you looking for help with?

    It sounds as if a Visio project might fit the bill -  see if this is helpful

    InfoTech Research Group has some great templates. I took a quick look under Tools & Resources / Templates & Policies / Topics and found specific infrastructure templates. You have to sign up to access them, but I have worked with their templates for Security Policies and DRP documentation, and found them quite helpful.

    I like AndreaF's idea. In the end, there is no "standard" that I'm aware of. Do what's best for you and your business.
