German term or phrase: nicht alltäglich
I know it's contrary to ordinary and should be something like special or so - but would like to hear your oppinion, what fits best. Here some context:

Von einem Planungsbüro in .... erhielten wir eine Eilanfrage über ein Pumpenaggregat mit nicht alltäglichen Anforderungen.

Is there any other word than special, which I could use in this case?

tnx

unusual


Explanation:
'es ist ganz alltaeglich' would be 'it's nothing unusual'

so 'nicht alltaeglich' would be
'quite unusual'; 'very unusual' or maybe just 'unusual'


another word for alltaeglich is 'ordinary'
