kitchen ventilation systems


When the proprietor of the famed Jamaica Inn (at Bolventor, Cornwall) decided to change and expand the menu offering for his clientele and to provide an exclusive wedding venue, HVAC were approached through the catering specialist, to design and install a kitchen ventilation system.

There was a strict budget and tight deadlines to meet but with its expertise in full kitchen ventilation systems, HVAC were able to provide a solution with energy saving technology and built-in flexibility for future expansion of the central cooking facility.

The HVAC Solution:

HVAC designed, manufactured & installed, a full system comprising; canopies, airmovement plant, air distribution ductwork and system controls – all to ventilate the new cooking island suite, pastry prep and store areas. The canopies incorporate full fume capture technology, return air facility, lighting & comfort spot-cooling for operatives. The ductwork included both extract and supply air facilities with filtration and heavy duty plant. The controls package includes fan speed regulation, gas interlock, alarm interface, gas proving and full-auto or manual functions.


As well as providing excellent customer support & liaison through the design & planning process, we were able to devise a programme of works which integrated with all of the other trades associated with the project. The incorporation of the controls package meant the full responsibility for the function & performance of the system lay with HVAC as a single point of contact. Knowing that the client had short and long term aspirations to install additional items of cooking equipment, HVAC were able to build in long-term flexibility to cope with these changes; simply and economically.

Customer Feedback:

“HVAC provided a great level of service and guidance through what could have been a
much more difficult design and installation process. The result is a simple and efficient
solution with the flexibility for future development and expansion of the Menu.”.
