Rock Gap Engineering (RGE) is a 100% Native American owned engineering and construction firm that was founded in 2005 by Keith Keetso an enrolled member of the Navajo Nation and the company was named after Mr. Keetso’s Navajo clan, Tsé deeshgizhnii (Rock Gap Clan).
At the start, RGE’s primary focus was to provide engineering design services to the various federal agencies and to the communities within the Navajo Nation. As RGE quickly built a reputation for respect, integrity, commitment, teamwork, and to accurately identifying innovative, economically feasible, and environmentally responsible solutions for every client, other Native American tribes began to approach RGE to provide additional services. In 2008, RGE opened an office in Albuquerque, NM providing engineering design services and has grown to become an engineering and construction firm with multiple offices.
RGE is certified by the Small Business Administration as an 8(a), Small Disadvantaged Business and as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) by the New Mexico Unified Certification Program (NMUCP) and the New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT).
