See photo. There is going to be a decorative water Feature below this structure. Are these metal beams required to be bonded?
I wasn't able to fully understand the picture. If I see it correctly, the steel beams (on the right side) are above the water feature. There are 2 sections of code I would study extra carefully: Article 250.104(c) which addresses exposed structural metal and Article 680.26 which deals with bonding of pools, fountains, and the like. While I'm not going to offer a definitive answer, perhaps the references will help you.
The metal beams will support the decking which will be above the water, not in the water.
