Supply Air Island Canopy / Bespoke BBQ Canopy / Odour Control / Gas Interlock / General Ventilation / Air Conditioning / Toilet Ventilation / Fire Suppression / ESP


CK Direct Ltd was invited to tender for the refurbishment of the former Methodist Chapel in Pepper St Chester, transforming it into Chester’s premier dining experience.

The ventilation system was by far the most challenging aspect of the project, with heavy restrictions from the local council and DEFRA guidelines and the whole project under scrutiny.

To remain compliant and meet all guidelines, CK Direct installed a 4000mm x 3000 mm Island Canopy with Service Distribution Unit for the main kitchen and a 2000 mm x 1800 mm wall canopy over the front-of-house bespoke BBQ Unit.

As well as the extract system, CK Direct also installed:

  • Tempered Supply Air System
  • Gas Interlock System
  • Fire Suppression Systems
  • Electrostatic Precipitators
  • Ozone Systems
  • General Ventilation to 2 floors
  • Air Conditioning to 1st and 2nd Floors
  • Toilet Ventilation

The whole project used over 600 metres of square, spiral and rectangular duct, all manufactured in-house.

The project took 3 months, a completion date 3 weeks ahead of schedule.


“Even though the Canopy’s were not a regular size, that didn’t seem to faze the Project Manager at CK Direct Ltd. Turnaround time and prices were extremely competitive compared to extraction companies that had also quoted.

The whole project had a target of 4 months, CK Direct Ltd were finished 3 weeks ahead of schedule and on budget. The Operation Manual they supplied was comprehensive and easy to follow. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them and will certainly use them again in the future.”
