Red Mountain Engineering Ranked No. 7 in Arizona

A Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community member-owned business was recently listed among the best businesses in Arizona.

Patrick Dallas’ Red Mountain Engineering, LLC, was ranked No. 7 in the “Engineering: Civil, 13 Engineers or Fewer” category of the 2017 Ranking Arizona, an annual publication from AZ Big Media.

Ranking Arizona is a way for firms to be recognized among their peers within their industry. The business rankings reflect the outcome of the largest business opinion poll in Arizona at

“It’s a great honor to be recognized within our industry for all the hard work and dedication performed by my employees and myself,” said Dallas, owner and project manager of Red Mountain Engineering.

This is the first time RME has appeared in Ranking Arizona, but it’s not the first time Dallas has been recognized for his hard work. In 2009, he received the Native American Entrepreneur of the Year award from the American Indian Chamber of Commerce of Arizona.

RME performs multiple consulting services for a variety of construction projects, ranging from residential and commercial to industrial and governmental facilities.

Currently, RME is working on several projects: the SRPMIC Cultural Repository, SRPD Evidence Storage Facility, a Residence Inn by Marriott, Salt River Police Department/Fire Substation improvements, and the Salt River Clinic demolition.

The company’s Land Surveying Department is involved with the Community’s Way of Life Facility, Osborn Road improvements, SRPMIC water system improvements, the Salt River Fields water production facility, SRPMIC roadway chip seal project, Gila River Indian Community’s Hu Hu Kam Memorial Hospital entrance improvements, and the Harkins Theatres Estrella Falls 16.

Previously, RME provided services for Salt River Fields at Talking Stick, TopGolf, Talking Stick Resort pool remodels, Casino Arizona Bingo Hall addition and the SRPMIC Data Center.

RME also has provided services for projects on other Arizona tribal communities, including the Gila River Indian Community, the Ak-Chin Indian Community, the Tohono O’odham Nation, the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation, the Hopi Tribe and the Navajo Nation.

The staff at RME ranges from 10 to 14 employees, depending on the workload. The company has been located in Tempe for more than eight years.

“I would like to thank the SRPMIC tribal government for the opportunities they have given RME to provide our civil engineering, land surveying, and consulting services,” said Dallas.
