How would YOU install this ceiling fan?? - commercial space.

Hey guys,
Wondering how someone more experienced than me would handle this:

My wife has a Yoga/Pilates studio and wants a ceiling fan installed in a room. (12' commercial exposed girders)
Its easy access to elec from 6 existing pot lights and open girder commercial ceiling.
Easy to tie into the existing pots for power, But they want to maintain the dimmer switch on the lighting.
Will a ceiling fan work on a regular dimmer?

Or should I pull power from an electric outlet on the wall? Run it somehow to a switch 3 bays over, and then feed it up to the fan, so it has its own source and control? What a pain in the arse... and close to impossible as they are mirrored walls

Thanks buds!

You're probably trying to post too big a picture. Try to limit it to 100kb in size as the board does have a preset limit. Pics from phones are usually too big and need to be reduced.

You can't connect the fan to a regular dimmer. You will need to run a new line to it.

We'll wait on the pictures, but being in a commercial building, it may require conduit, just so you are aware.
