We designed our unique NOMAAD modular system so that it can be transported in standard international shipping containers and moved to your site on regular flatbed trucks. We delivered a NOMAAD unit to Piazza Flaminio in Vittorio Veneto, Italy and if we found our way through the narrow streets of an ancient Italian town, we're pretty confident we can get NOMAAD to your site of choice.
