Overcoming The Impossible.
The Vinita Health Center was considered an improbable renovation project to take on in 2020. But, with the pandemic escalating and patient space being underutilized, failure was not an option. Thanks to the commitment of James R. Childers Architect, Inc., Candor Building Solutions, and Interior Logistics, the ambitious renovation was finished in 120 days, from start to finish. This video case study showcases how this all-star team used DIRTT prefabricated solutions and collaboration to deliver a fully-operational health center to the Cherokee Nation on schedule, as promised.
Flintco believes that recognizing safe behaviors helps encourage others to follow suit. Based on the number of positive safety notices issued company-wide vs. reprimands, our approach is working. At the 203,000 SF design-build Oyate Health Center in Rapid City, South Dakota, for Great Plains Tribal Leaders Health Board with James R. Childers Architect, Inc., and HKS Architects and JV partner Scull Construction Service, Flintco started a monthly drawing to further emphasize and recognize the team’s commitment to safety. November’s winner was Teddy Conroy (pictured at left) of Iron Horse Excavating, Inc and Toby Haynes (not shown). Presenting the prize from Flintco is Senior Project Manager Harry Knight. Thank you for making safety the backbone of our culture! The project is scheduled for completion in summer 2023. #Flintco4LIFE #FlintcoDenver
Congratulations! We were honored to be a part of this invaluable project to the Choctaw Nation and their families. #BuildingExcellence with James R. Childers Architect, Inc.

Our interior designers had fun with this project by creating a unique, fun and easy wayfinding design for the children to easily find their classrooms. As you look down the hallway, each classroom can be found with a color.

Welcome to the Childers Team, Elio Mendez!

Elio is an Architectural Associate with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Texas at Arlington. Elio’s interest of how buildings are designed started early as he worked in the construction field. Architecture is most definitely fulfilling that curiosity. He approaches design with a conscientious mindset. “How will this be put together?” and “How will this affect the surroundings?” are the two questions that form Elio’s approach to architecture. He brings a great work ethic and a collaborative mindset to the design team. He is confident, reliable, and enthusiastic about his work. Elio is also a Staff Sergeant in the Marine Corp who works in the logistics department. In his free time, Elio plays the guitar. He is an aspiring song writer who writes songs from time to time mainly in Spanish.

Welcome Ruel Mendoza to the Childers Architect family!

Ruel has 18 years of experience in all phases of the design process including conceptual design, master planning, schematic design through design development, interior design, and the interface of design with construction documents. He has participated in the design of a variety of healthcare facilities including university teaching hospitals, regional medical centers, outpatient centers, cancer centers and medical office buildings. He leads the design effort to explore and develop an appropriate architectural image for each individual project and guide its execution from design through construction documents.
At an early age, Ruel found his passion in drawing. He excelled in using different mediums to draw still life of objects to creating his own comic book superheroes. Equipped with this talent, he attended Texas Tech University to pursue a master’s degree in architecture. He learned to explore the relationships between form, space, and people who experienced it. He expressed his ideas through layers of tracing paper filled with sketches that begins to define the overall design concept of the project. Today, he uses his drawing talent as part of the design process to communicate the client’s vision for the project. At Childers Architect, he is dedicated to becoming the ‘whole’ architect and be involved in the entire design process from concept design to construction administration.
Outside of work, Ruel runs a rideshare service for his high school kids, maintains numerous streaming services for family and friends, and is an avid MCU fan. If Ruel finds a genie in a bottle, his second wish would be to be able to play a musical instrument to play John Williams Imperial March song, be part of a musical flash mob, and play Elio’s songs.

The significance of architecture is creating experiences that people can feel. When someone walks into a particular environment there is a certain emotion. As an architect firm, we have the power to create that feeling. When the feeling is strong enough it becomes a memory. The heart of what we strive to accomplish in our practice of architecture is creating meaningful spaces.
