This capstone is a feasibility study for the adaptive reuse of the Colt estate stable in Bristol, RI by analyzing two possible adaptive reuse scenarios. The two scenarios the report focuses on is a special event venue and a horse stable and training facility. The goal of the report is to examine which scenario would be a feasible option for the existing structure while maintaining its historical integrity. Feasibility was determined by analyzing and assessing factors such as assumptions and limitations that are associated with the structure and the adaptive reuse process. Both adaptive reuse scenarios were examined individually to assess the objectives and constraints that corresponds with both scenarios. A financial synthesis was created to compare rehabilitation costs to the income forecast for each scenario. The final recommendation of which scenario would be a feasible solution was determined based on the analysis of the factors and financial synthesis.
