Island Hood Vent Centering Problems

I'm new here (First Time Home Buyer) and I'm renovating my kitchen. I think this is the correct forum if its not steer me the right direction.

I have ripped out my kitchen cabinets which held an under cabinet hood vent (above my stove obviously). I'm also going to remove the wall the hood vent was on. So my problem is that I want to install a Chimney style Hood Vent (this one) but I have a beam right through the center of when the exhaust vent for the Chimeny should go (the old one was 4 inches over). Anyone know a good solution to this problem? I can't move the stove.

any suggestions appreciated

Island Hood Vent Centering Problems

If the vent is wide enough, you could just go around the beam. Cut the vent in two peices, "notch" around the beam, and patch the seam between the vent and the beam. Like I said..IF the vent is wide enough, the air will still flow past it.
