@Dean Read,I think we need to add detail here about theatre seating but from just the four words in your brief question we may be missing what's needed for your case.I note that the theater seating manufacturers are themselves good sources of basic standards and terms for theater seating measurements such as theBrown, Jenna, "10 Seating Terms To Know When Planning An Auditorium", Irwin Seating Company, 3251 Fruit Ridge NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49544 USA, Tel: 616-574-7400 or Toll Free: 1-866-GO IRWIN (464-7946) retrieved 2021/06/22 original source: -seating-terms-to-know-when-planning-an-auditoriumAmong these terms (regrettably she did not include dimensions, just definitions of terms, probably because they vary by building code jurisdiction) a few critical ones for moving in and out of the theatre or auditorium safely (we've edited the original text for clarity) might incude- Clear passage space: free walking area between the front of the chair to the portion of the back of the chair in front of it that most projects into the walking space.- Row length: total outside dimension of an entire row of seats - maximum possible walking distance from aisle to aisle- Row spacing - between rows - including to meet ADA requirementsand I would add:- Aisle widths and lengths- Location and number of exits- Slope of flooring, aisles, passageways- Stair riser heights (you can find those at InspectApedia)- Handrailing and guardrail heights (you can find those at InspectApedia)- Distances to emergency exits- Lighting and marking for emergency exits (you can find those at InspectApedia)- Fire codes on flammability of chairs, seating, carpets, etc. for public auditoriums and halls (See NFPA 260 & California 117 on the Smoldering Cigarette test and See California 133 on Chair Flame Testing)And of course there is still longer list of chair pitch, chair dimensions such as width etc. even details of the requirements for the security of floor mounting of seating.From all of this my suggestion is to identify your building code jurisdiction so that one might focus on the specific codes that you'd have to meet.
Apologies for this arm-waving but accurate reply Ron but ultimately the final legal authority on code questions is your local building inspector. Her word is law. New Jersey has adopted the 2009 IRC so we can either look in your local township's copy or at the 2009 IRC for deck construction. In the IRC as well as other model codes and adopted building codes deck posts must be mechanically fastened both to the supporting pier below and to the girders or beams above. See details at DECK PIER CONSTRUCTION _Pier_Install.php
