Meet The Team


Chris Noorda / Owner

Chris Noorda - Owner of Noorda Technologies

As the owner of Noorda Building Envelope Contractor, a general contractor specializing in many aspects of construction from design to completion, Chris recognized a need in the construction industry for precise, accurate measuring capabilities. This realization led him to establish Noorda Tech. Once Chris created this additional business model, it had a transformative effect on the architectural, engineering, and construction community. A paradigm shift is underway, and Noorda Tech is leading the charge under his leadership.

Noorda Tech is the team that architects, engineers and contractors gravitate to for their 3D laser scanning, point cloud registration, or accurate modeling needs. An ambitious entrepreneur with more than 20 years of business experience in the Salt Lake Valley, Chris will continue to be an innovator in the construction industry and beyond.

Aaron Owen / Owner / CTO

Aaron began his technology career performing signal analysis aboard the submarine USS Parche, SSN 683, where he earned a top secret clearance, and was awarded two Presidential Unit Citations during two of the most dangerous and secretive missions the US Navy has ever conducted. Aaron was recognized on several occasions for his decisive role in complex and dangerous technical challenges during these operations.

After his military service, Aaron went on to work as senior network consultant and CTO of two successful network engineering companies, inventing and patenting a proprietary Internet technology, greatly enhancing the capabilities of his clients’ networks. Aaron has advised and consulted for many definitive names in Utah, including Dell Loy Hansen – Real Salt Lake, Mayor DeeDee Corradini, and Joel Carson – CEO Prudential Utah, as well as guided and consulted on other patented technologies.

After eleven years consulting for Chris Noorda, Aaron developed a high level of respect for Chris Noorda’s total devotion to professionalism and innovative vision for the future of building, manufacturing and architectural technologies. Aaron has devoted his time and expertise to the realization of that vision as CTO.

Ty Phifer / Chief Operating Officer

Ty has a passion for people, problem solving and processes. He believes with the proper preparation everything should run smoothly and the client’s expectations will be exceeded. He doesn’t stop until this goal has been achieved. He can often be heard saying, “we can do better” even when the client is satisfied.

Ty has 16 years of business management, financial and customer service experience which he uses to help lead Noorda Tech to a level of professionalism not often seen in today’s business world.

In addition to his enthusiasm for his professional endeavors, Ty considers his greatest accomplishments and responsibilities to be those associated with his wife and two children. They inspire him to focus on what’s important. Ty spends his leisure time serving in his church and trying to lower his handicap. The shortest path to a strong business relationship with Ty can be achieved through a round of golf.
