Our History

Our History

Our company founder, Patrick J. Gaughan, established Gaughan Companies in 1969. Patrick J. led the Construction, Development and Management company for 28 years with a steadfast commitment to quality, safety, timeliness and budgetary priorities. The company prospered, and Gaughan Companies developed a reputation for sustainable, consistent and reliable results.

During the time of Patrick J.’s leadership, Gaughan Companies became one of the top Commercial Construction companies in Minnesota. The company developed and constructed Industrial, Retail, Medical, Multifamily Apartments and Office buildings across the state, won many Reggie Awards, and was awarded the first TIF project of Washington County

A Hardworking Family Tradition

A Hardworking Family Tradition

In 1997, the youngest of Patrick J.’s children, Patrick M. Gaughan, bought the company after his father’s passing.

For many years, Minneapolis St. Paul Business Journal has named Gaughan Companies as one of the Top 25 Commercial Real Estate Brokerage Firm, Property Management Firm, Developer and General Contractor.

Our mission is to care for people’s real estate interests through development, construction, brokerage, management and maintenance. Gaughan Companies will continue to offer an exceptional level of professionalism and service for years to come.
