Sam McFarland - AKA "Scoob"

senior assistive technology engineer

Sam joined Levland Ltd at the start of 2021 and is our self-proclaimed “Auto Door Whisperer”. He is a fully qualified automatic door specialist, being “Door Safe” registered, having a diploma and NVQ in automated door surveying, assessment, design, installation & maintenance to BS EN 16005. When it comes to auto doors, if he doesn’t know it – it isn’t worth knowing!

Despite his acquired automatic door “guru” status, he’s had to relinquish the title of being the newest (and freshest faced) member of the Levland team to Daniel Newell recently (no more puppy looks in the group photo!). Sam shows impressive knowledge across our entire services catalogue with networking, CCTV, and custom app design residing at the top of his (current) favorites list.

Sam loves technology with a passion and believes that life is one constant learning curve. His latest challenge (and claim to Levland fame) was to “learn how to build a website”. If you are reading this on the all new Levland.com, then he has completed his challenge! (Please feel free to get in touch with feedback on how he has done).

Sam is incredibly proud of his work and will always go the extra mile to find, design and implement solutions for his customers. He carries an infectious sense of humor and will usually be found at his happiest with “Scooby Snacks” in hand and his head buried in a comms cabinet or designing and building a complex bespoke control app!

Sam’s role as Senior Assistive Technology Engineer is a tale of two halves. One – to organise the projects and works, from initial customer meetings, planning, design, and costing. Two – the implementation of those works on site to bring a project to completion. Sam is the first to say this role can be challenging, but with the support of the rest of the team, he wouldn’t choose to be anywhere else!

Sam’s musings – “Every day is a school day!” / “If it ain’t broke…don’t fix it!” / “What’s the worst that can happen?” / “There must be a way!” / “It would be rude not to!” / “Mine’s with milk, no sugar!”
