Gerard Construction: Our Story

Aggie owned and operated, Gerard Construction is ready to discuss your ideas, create a plan, and build the home of your dreams. Our team was specialty built to understand multiple aspects of the construction and building process so we can better assist our clients throughout the entire process of homebuilding. Not only do we build structures, we proudly build relationships.

About Gerard Construction: Background

Michael Patranella, founder and owner, graduated from Texas A & M in ’77 with a degree in Agricultural Education and a minor in Biology. After graduation, he spent over 24 years in the banking industry. In 2002, Michael began Gerard Construction to meet the growing desire for custom homes and remodels in the Brazos Valley. During high school and college, he worked on numerous construction projects. Once he began a career within the finance industry, he found that his knowledge of home building grew even within the confines of the bank. His networks also grew, providing connections, mentors, and experts in homebuilding. When looking to transition out of the financial industry, it appeared to be an organic move towards an area he was passionate about.

Michael sought to work with a strong, service-minded team, and decided to join with Kelly Adams, owner of Gerard Construction. Kelly studied extensively at Texas A & M graduating with a degree in Business Management and a Masters in Education. Kelly and his wife love the Brazos Valley and the Aggie spirit found here. They are proudly raising two future Aggies as well.

All three are heavily involved in church and community organizations locally. This involvement is personally important to each, but it also helps anchor them to the community they work to provide for.

Our Expertise

Michael has extensive experience in securing home and building loans and brings that experience to the construction side of building and remodeling in a unique way. His understanding of the financial investment being made motivates his attention to quality products. This also carries over into the land acquisition services we offer.
