Sherpa Environmental Limited

Sherpa Environmental Limited is a customer-committed company that specialises in keeping water systems safe.

Our philosophy is to develop the relationship as a solutions partner, not just a contractor. This means we are much more switched on to the needs of your company and how you need the service delivered. 

In turn, this means that we will help you make decisions around budgets competently and professionally, and advise on prioritising. This approach saves our clients’ money while reducing the risk.

We are a customer-focussed company that works with our clients and facilities management contractors to identify their needs, and deliver a quality service by dedicating our skilled workers to nationwide contracts.

Sherpa services clients in the public and private sectors, some of which are well-known names, both as a main contractor and as a sub-contractor.

Quality is important to us and we always take responsibility and control on a contract, even where we work as a sub-contractor. We recognise this is important to the client.

Legionella risk assessments

We can carry out Legionella risk assessments of your water systems to make sure that you are compliant. We can also design maintenance systems to reduce or eliminate the risk, keeping our clients compliant with regulation standards (HSG274 and Approved Code of Practice L8, for example).

Water sampling

Where water condition is a concern, we can test water samples to determine water quality. This can be done as an ad-hoc request, such as when a building user reports a concern over water taste Sherpa Environmental Limitedor discolour, or as a regular function for high risk sites, such as an elderly care site.

Water tank clean & disinfection

We carry out tank clean and disinfection to all sizes of tanks and done to a very high standard. Tanks are inspected on a six-monthly basis and regular maintenance should be put in place to keep them safe. Water sampling can be done periodically to safeguard these systems.


We are Quality Management System (QMS) compliant (ISO 9001 and ISO 14001), as well as being accredited by The Contractors Health & Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) and SafeContractor. We are also registered with the Legionella Control Association and the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO). 

As accredited members of the LCA, Sherpa Environmental are regularly audited and inspected by them to ensure we are working to high standards. 

Modern law can be confusing and places a lot of pressure on building owners to comply with government regulations, particularly around Legionella. To help, we offer a wide range of services that are designed to offer a complete water hygiene solution. 

This means we can survey, assess the risks and help design a solution for you, reducing or eliminating the risks entirely. Sherpa works with a Solutions Partner philosophy, giving you sound advice to help you manage your water hygiene risks within your building or portfolio, all at cost effective rates.

Vetted and trained technicians

All technicians and site staff have clear DBS checks and always carry identification cards. We train all new staff and technicians into our company with a thorough induction programme, and also receive from us contract-specific training.

Dedicated staff

Sherpa will dedicate named technicians to your contract. This means you know who will be responsible for the work and can build up a solid, professional relationship with them. They will become known to your building managers and users, developing rapport and confidence in the service.

Work programming

Sherpa will plan out work in advance and will work with the building managers, staff and residents so they know what is being carried out and keep disruption to a minimum.
