foundation drainage

Building an addition with full basement and would be interested to get some feedback about the foundation drainage system. Here is what is planned.

It is an 8" masonry construction for a general use basement (not finished). The drain pipe will tie into the current drain pipe around the existing house (I assume this drains to daylight somewhere, I do not have a sump system). Pipe will be at least 6" below the top of basement slab. Clay type soil. The drainage stone quoted for the job is 2-a modified but this could be changed ((says 2B in drawing - disregard). Really appreciate any comments, thanks.
