We've provided architectural services for a broad range of project types and scale for three decades.  Our experience is in athletic, commercial, educational, federal housing, healthcare, industrial, interior design, and religious facilities.


Firm Portfolio



Redland Childers is committed to making the built environment better by using three design principles: make it beautiful, make it right the first time, and make it stand the test of time. Buildings matter, designs matter.



We recognize value in the quality of service, cost of projects, and longevity.  Be practical with designs.  Every project is unique and we have one chance to get it right.  Be clear with documentation.  We cherish relationships because our best solutions are found in the overlap of individual attributes.  Be fair to others.  Projects are complex.  Accept responsibility.  Plan for the unexpected. 


Firm History

The company was established in 1979 by Glen Childers and was later joined by his brother Don Childers to form Childers-Childers Architects & Associates.  An additional business venture was started in 2006 by Tim Elliott, Kim Prater, Forrest Neal, Glen, and Don called Redland Architects.  In 2012 the two companies merged forming Redland Childers Architects.


Native American

We're proud to be a Native American Owned and Operated business.  Being located in the heart of the Chickasaw Nation has given us a great appreciation of our rich history while focusing on the future.
