Award-winning aspects of the building and the subcontractors responsible for them were: brick masonry work by Henry J. Knott Masonry; pneumatic tube system by Pevco Systems International; electrical conduit by Gill-Simpson; and stone masonry work by Rugo Stone. The Bunting Center also was recognized in October with the 2010 Bridging the Gap Achievement Award by the Greater Baltimore Committee for efforts at creating a minority business partnership and strategic alliance with Whiting-Turner, Maryland Washington Minority Contractor Association and Rep. Elijah Cummings.
