The new Stanley Middle School for Gaston County Schools is approximately 135,000 square feet.

The project is a two story, 40 classroom middle school serving sixth, seventh, and eighth grades. The project includes a full service kitchen, multipurpose dining, dedicated gymnasium, media center, and a separate wing for each grade with administration areas.

The mechanical systems included variable air volume terminal units with hot water reheat serving the classroom and administration areas. Variable volume air handling units with hot water preheat coils and chilled water cooling coils  located in mechanical rooms, and on the roof provide conditioned air to the  terminal units.

Large multiuse spaces are served by constant volume single zone roof top units.

An air cooled chiller and gas fired boilers provide the hot water for heating and the chilled water for cooling.
