Architect nixes my pick: Best P195P hood vs Zephyr Monsoon I

So I picked out the Zephyr Monsoon I hood insert @600cfm for my Miele HR1724 30" duel fuel range using much research especially from Houzz. Just got an email from architect and KD which stated "we have chosen" the Best P195p series hood. I know absolutely nothing about this hood, it was not one of the recommendations from the appliance store owner (who I do trust to know her stuff). On a quick glance the Best is much shallower at around 10" front to back vs 19" for the Zephyr. Also it has mesh grease filters, not baffles. I think it may be louder too 12 vs 6 sones. It is 700 cfm tho, but I don't ever fry and rarely sear. I don't know if I should force them to use my original choice or let them have their way. Of course with COVID I can't look at any of this stuff so HELP!
