How to remove/cut this thick metal commercial hood duct?

This is the metal duct of a commercial hood that was over a gas stove. What is the best way to get it down? And what about those metal poles hanging from the ceiling that were holding up the exhaust hood?

Pull out the ceiling tiles---the threaded rods will unscrew---and the duct should have flanges with nuts and bolts---so a socket and a box wrench will be all that is needed to remove that----fairly simple job---

Most likely also going to have to somehow cap that old vent off above the ceiling or you'll have an open hole to the outside.
