HERVEY Bay's Nathan Hore is still in shock after his business claimed five awards at the Master Builders Wide Bay Burnett Housing and Construction Awards.

The five awards include the President's Award for a home built in Nikenbah.

Mr Hore said it was an exciting moment, even if the people weren't allowed to attend the awards because of COVID-19.

He said good tradies and suppliers played a big part in the success of the business.

Master Builders' Wide Bay Burnett Regional Manager Ian Langer, congratulated the winners across all 33 categories.

"In today's climate, where so much is uncertain, recognising the great work that is done in our industry is so important," Mr Langer said.

"We had to do things a little differently for our Housing and Construction Awards this year, but I'm pleased to see that the Wide Bay community banded together.

"We have seen some exceptional projects this year, from tourism facilities, community centres and educational hubs, to beautiful seaside abodes and modern mansions.

"It's proof that Wide Bay builders are built tough and can continue to shine, despite the pressures COVID-19 is putting on our industry."
