It costs a lot of designing and installing a commercial kitchen ventilation system, which is extremely crucial to a commercial kitchen. The CKV system must comply with a range of regulations and design codes imposed by state and local building authorities, health departments, fire marshals, insurance companies and even OSHA. So it’s better to seek help from a design professional instead of struggling alone. However it is the owner and/or the restaurant operator’s responsibility to understand the system in terms of running the restaurant cost-efficiently.
