Installing ducting from oven to outside

Roughly what would it cost to have a tradesman do this job?

We have a cooker extraction fan hood, but it is not connected to outside so is a bit pointless.

I want to install ducting so that it extracts the air to outside.

For complication, there is a small room in between the kitchen and the external wall.

The ducting would need to go:
- up to kitchen ceiling (2ft),
- along the ceiling (4ft),
- around or through a brick column (this column seems like a fundamental pillar for the stability of the house) which separates the kitchen from the adjacent room
- then through this room to the external wall (5ft).

In total it is only maybe 11 foot distance, but the brick column is the tricky part, I don't know if the ducting should go through it (looks better) or around it (will look awful).

And the ducting needs to be quite small and/or boxed in to look nicer.

The parts seem cheap the hard part is doing it right and making it as invisible as possible.

Something like this might work:
