The Somerset-Berkley Regional High School in Massachusetts is looking for a makeover and the design was finally chosen, according to the Taunton Gazette.

The traditional brick design was based off of the nearby Whitman-Hanson High School. A series of architectural companies proposed their designs, but Ai3 Architects of Wayland was chosen, according to the news provider.

This design also incorporates some eco-friendly and sustainable materials including solar panels on the top of the gym, a rainwater recovery system, and also heating and cooling systems that will be able to judge how many people are in the room and adjust accordingly, according to the media outlet.

"We have some fine-tuning to do," R.W. Pineault, the high school principal who retired last month but still sits on the building committee, told the news source.

Architecture design students may be able to land a job once they graduate from their design programs. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in this field is expected to increase by 16 percent between 2008 and 2018.
