About Us


Our mission is todemystify water hygiene legislation and provide comprehensive legionella management so individuals responsible for premises get peace of mind they’re legally compliant.”

Fact is we’re helping building owners and managers across the UK to do just that.

Our one-stop-shop makes us uniquely placed to handle all your water hygiene requirements. From legionella risk assessment through to remedial action and on-going management and support, we’ve got the IN-HOUSE EXPERTISE and TECHNICAL SKILLS to take care of everything on your behalf.

In fact, other water hygiene providers who lack our level of expertise often subcontract work to us.

Who is Key Environmental?

Key Environmental has been making water safe for the last 19 years.   The management team consists of founder Con O’Shea (that’s me), Service Manager Paul Shelton and Service Team Leaders (and  brothers) Alan and Paul Blake . Collectively we’re sticklers for detail, have a genuine enthusiasm for our work and enjoy creating clarity where there’s confusion.

But the main driving force is YOU, our customers, and a desire to provide a service that’s truly tailored specifically to your premises

I have a long and varied history in the water hygiene industry. I’ve seen lots of changes – and helped building owners address all manner of problems.

The underpinning customer service ethos that distinguishes Key Environmental is a result of my frustration with the rigid, inflexible approach practiced by many contractors.

For sure a detailed understanding of water chemistry, legislation and water system technology is essential, but most of our customers simply want clarity and understanding around their legal obligations to ensure they remain compliant.

Let’s be honest. A tailored approach is the best way to achieve that…

Therefore instead of generic reporting and systems that make life easier for the contractor, Key Environmental practice a client-centred approach. All consultancy, risk assessment, reporting and remedial work is specifically tailored to individual premises.

What does this mean for you?

Instead of sifting through reams of N/As or being offered a “one-size-fits-all” technical fix, our customers receive STRAIGHT TALKING, JARGON FREE ADVICE and premise specific remedial solutions to ensure they remain compliant.

Our clients tell us they value our reliability and trust our thoroughness and attention to detail. We consistently deliver our promises.

In turn clients have joined us and stayed. And we now provide water hygiene services to HOTELS, CARE HOMES, HOSPITALS, SCHOOLS DENTISTS, TRAIN OPERATORS and LANDLORDS across the UK from our central office in Warwickshire.

And if you’d like to discover more about how we can help you, please get in touch.
