Gaughan Work Ethics: Rooted in Our History

We wouldn’t be who we are today without the strong relationships we have built with our clients and our communities. This passion was etched into our company from the very beginning when we were established in 1969 by Patrick J. Gaughan. Patrick led the company to become one of the top Commercial Construction companies in Minnesota, won many Reggie Awards, and was presented the first TIF project of Washington County. His steadfast commitment to quality, safety, timeliness and financial management developed a reputable and sustainable business that can be relied upon still today.

With a passion for our Twin Cities metro region and the culture of our area, we are always excited to help our clients discover new opportunities and assess their commercial real estate needs.
