Attendance of 1550 at the Hart Rink would be a violation of the fire code.
Wrong per usual.
Official capacity of rink is 1,600.
This has been discussed previously at length, but perhaps you overlooked or ignored it.
The following are the architect/engineer life safety values for capacity of the rink Maybe IU'll put the pdf files out on Google docs and those who care to examine the calculations may
Hart rink space name / square footage / (number of occupants) Skate Sharpening Room 185 sq ft (1) Video Room 338 sq ft ( 23) Ice rink 16,330 sq ft (327) Locker rooms for HC and visitor, west (men's) side of the rink: 288, 57. 335, 138, 138, 335, 58, 288, 305 sq ft (66) Glass room 185 sq ft (1) Spectator seating, bleachers (572) 859 Corrected Oct 20 Wheelchairs and companions (12 of each) Bud Ryan room & media booths (81) Bud Ryan room and media booths does not exit through the emergency exits on the west side of the rink. The women's locker rooms on the east side of the rink do not exit on the west side of the rink. __________________________________________ Exit door / stairs northwest side of the rink, required capacity by occupant count, supra 331; constructed and installed capacity 440
Exit door / stairs southwest side of the rink, required capacity 331, constructed capacity 440 ___________________________ Spectators per seated row were calculated for basketball, but not for ice hockey.
The Hart basketball court calculation is as follows: 11 rows (each side court) at 112' 6" length per row. 18" per spectator seat 75 spectators per row 11 rows x 75 spectators per row = 825 spectators (1,650 total)
11 rows (each end court) at 48 feet per row 18" per seat 32 spectators per row 11 x 32 spectators per row,= 352 spectators (704 total)
The other 1,270 seats are in the upper tiers. Total seated capacity of the Hart is 3670. (its actually less than that because the number of spectators per row assumes spectators are seated in the aisles).
