The Glens kicked off their pre-season with a 4-0 victory over neighbours Dundela at Wilgar Park on Saturday, after their original warm-up fixture at home to Derry City was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.
Speaking after the victory, Patterson told UTV the game was an ideal way to kick off the pre-season.
"At this stage of the season it's a case of getting the players into game mode, and bringing onto the pitch what we have been doing in training," he said.
"It's a rebuilding job. It's a case of us now looking forward to the future and working hard on what we want (the players) to do in training and basically get our new players integrated into the current crop - pre-season all builds towards that."
However, the Glens boss was cautious about talking up his sides chances of challenging for trophies next season.
He continued: "Whether we've got enough in the tank to make a challenge for next year remains to be seen, but I'm happy with the personnel we have brought in, coupled with the personnel we have from last season.
"There is a new lease of life about the boys, pre-season always gives a little bit of a lift to everyone, so hopefully that can continue into next season."
With many Glentoran fans feeling frustrated with the side's performances over the last two seasons, Patterson says getting the supporters behind the team will be crucial.
"We want to do better than we did last season. We want to have a good bash at giving a good account of ourselves, and hopefully through the season we can give the fans something to cheer about.
"What I mean by that is that if we can play the style of football that we want to play, a style that the Glentoran supporters over the last number of years have grown accustomed to - If we can get that back and really get the supporters behind us, then who knows where we can end up?
"As I said before, It is a rebuilding job. We've brought some players in, we're looking at other players and I wouldn't say we're finished yet.
"We'll see where it takes us. We're not going to make any targets for the lads, all we want them to do is enjoy their training, take what they've learned in training onto the football park, and f we can play the type of football we want to play that will be a big start for us."
