Auditorium seats designs must take a number of elements into account, including place requisites, relevant codes and standards. A set of standards governing auditorium seating standards has been evolved by the Whole Building Design Guide under the auspices of the National Institute of Building Sciences.
Whole Building Design Guide
The Whole Building Design Guide, a program of the National Institute of Building Sciences, is a web-based portal that allows information to government and private organisations on a range of issues related building construction, admitting design direction, project management, and operations and sustainment.
The National Institute of Building Sciences makes a figure of recommendations for auditorium seating designs. A short list admits: sloped floors to insure spectators can see the phase; fixed seats that allow sufficient place for spectators to move in and out of rows; and step lights to insure spectators can find their seats without injury.
Codes and Standards
Codes and standards relevant to auditorium seating plans admit the Americans with Disabilities Act; the Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines for Buildings and Facilities; and the International Building Code.
