The City of Lake Angelus is a 1.6 square mile entirely lakefront community in Northern Oakland County. McKenna approaches all projects with the preservation of this environment in mind, and has been able to provide building services that cater directly to the community’s specific needs of having a low volume of projects and no municipal administration offices.

McKenna updated all Building Department applications and forms making them more comprehensive and streamlined. Once these updates were completed, access to Building Department applications and forms was made even easier by ensuring increased access on the City’s website. The City’s size created a unique circumstance for McKenna, as no municipal administrative offices exist. Therefore, internal procedures were created that are devoted to both records retention and the processing of all applications and plan reviews directly from our offices.

Applicants are particularly pleased with McKenna’s cooperative attitude, flexibility, and willingness to go the extra mile to achieve not only positive, but efficient, results. By having access to highly trained and certified plan reviewers in varying fields, McKenna has provided thorough and consistent review of projects for the community’s unique properties. Acknowledging the historic nature of the community, our reviewers provide a careful approach to plan reviews. McKenna’s ability to flexibly schedule our professionals has also allowed applicants to commence work on construction projects as quickly as possible.

McKenna inspectors provide a wide variety of inspection services to the City, including Building and Trades (Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, and Fire Prevention). Our inspectors remain up to date on all the required registrations, licenses, and certifications to ensure all current code requirements and regulations are being met within the City. Residents and contractors appreciate our inspectors’ expertise when dealing with issues relating to code compliance, and flexibility when scheduling inspections.
