Ensuring Adaptable Commercial Kitchen Ventilation Design for Ghost Kitchens
Listen as Chef Mikko explains the unique challenges facing design professionals and how to overcome them with a adaptable kitchen ventilation system.
Commercial kitchens routinely pose unique challenges for HVAC design professionals and property owners. The rapid growth of Ghost Kitchens to satisfy the consumer demand for delivered meals has made this challenging design even more difficult. A typical Ghost Kitchen facility has between 20 and 30 kitchens that must have the flexibility to accommodate a variety of cooking equipment in multiple combinations. To avoid excessive energy costs, the kitchen exhaust system should be easily adjustable to meet the varying demands of each cooking lineup and different hours of operation.
The challenges for Ghost Kitchen Ventilation Systems
- Maximizing infrastructure flexibility
- Repurposing of existing facilities such as malls
- Availability of space for the widest number of kitchens
- Providing a comfortable environment while minimizing energy use
- Isolating menus by ethnicity or religion preparation requirements (Halal, Kosher)
- Enabling independent operation of each kitchen space even when tied to a common duct and fan
- Minimizing duct runs and exhaust systems
- Remote monitoring and data collection of critical systems
