A business-oriented kitchen, that is well-designed, forms an integral part of safe, efficient and profitable commercial food preparation. A business-oriented kitchen that has been designed to take into consideration ergonomics will be highly prized by the proprietor, chef as well as the kitchen staff. It may not be that easy to really appreciate just how vital the design is until you've worked in a kitchen that has been badly designed.
When you plan to remove or relocate a wall(s), the key factor to determine is, by so doing, will you encounter a load-bearing situation? This occurs when the wall(s) is part of the support system for the structure of the house. Usually a contractor can determine this. If the contractor is uncertain, you will need to have a structural engineer examine the structure to make that determination. If it is non load-bearing, when you are ready to start construction, the contractor can proceed to build out the space per the new plan. If it is a load-bearing issue, your local building authority will require that you retain a structural engineer or an architect to design a structural solution for removing or relocating the wall(s).
