Family, tradition, performance


The Giorgetti family

Félix Giorgetti is a general construction and property development company founded by members of a family who came from Italy at the end of the 19th century. It is responsible for the construction of some of the most iconic buildings and civil engineering projects in Luxembourg.

Telling Félix Giorgetti is to evoke the story of a family that left their native Italy to go to work in a rapidly developing country, Luxembourg. This is the tale of ambitious and daring young men who started their own construction business. A bet that turned out to be a winning strategy, since then the company has continued to grow and carry out projects that have shaped the landscape of Luxembourg today.

Telling Félix Giorgetti is describing the story of a centenary family business whose ambitions have led it to carry out large-scale projects, to become a recognized and leading player in the construction industry and real estate in Luxembourg.

Public, private and administrative buildings, housing estates, apartment buildings and houses, schools, theatres, hospitals, sports stadiums and museums, logistics, commercial and industrial infrastructures, roads, tunnels, bridges and viaducts… From its beginnings as a builder, Félix Giorgetti has expanded its reach to become expert in all construction trades.

Our exemplary organization is the key to our success for the smooth running of our projects and complete control of our production chain, as well as our desire to surround ourselves with the best talents.

Because telling Félix Giorgetti is to present a company that has become a group gathering complementary partner companies to carry out major projects. A group that now employs more than 1,000 people. Talented employees who are passionate about their work, exacting standards as an organisation, and complete control of the production chain are the keys to its success and longevity.

This combination has allowed Félix Giorgetti to accomplished great projects for over a century and remains its ambition for the future.

The beginnings

1898 — 1937

1890 - 1900

A group of young men from the village Brissago (Varese) leave Italy to make their living in Luxembourg. This group includes, among others, Achille Giorgetti and the two brothers Francesco and Eustache Giorgetti.

Shortly after their arrival, Achilles and Francesco set up their own construction company which operates mainly in the south of the country.


Following the death of Francesco Giorgetti, Achille, then only 26 years old, takes over the business.

Eustache Giorgetti joins Achille’s construction business as foreman of works, before returning to Italy to do his military service.

Following the Armistice, Eustache Giorgetti returns from Italy. In 1923 he is joined by his wife and their three young children, Maria, Paul and Félix (the latter born in 1920, and later to become father to Jacqueline, Paul and Marc).

Eustace then leads the construction of the Arbed (now Arcelor-Mittal) headquarters in Luxembourg City. This historic monument is undoubtedly one of the most prestigious achievements of the first generation of the Giorgetti family business. It was followed by the construction of other notable buildings on Avenue de la Liberté, one of the most emblematic streets of the capital.

After the turmoil of the Second World War, Eustache Giorgetti restarted his activities in construction and brought his two sons Félix and Paul together.

Under the management of brothers Paul and Félix, several of the Grand Duchy’s flagship buildings are constructed: the Sacré Coeur Clinic on Avenue Gaston Diderich in Luxembourg City, the Bohler Clinic on Route d’Arlon and the European School on Boulevard de la Foire.

These years were marked by strong evolution in construction technologies and techniques. Giorgetti constructs important public buildings, schools and clinics: the children’s hospital (Kannerklinik) and the Fieldgen private school on rue d'Anvers, as well as the offices of the insurance company La Baloise on Boulevard Roosevelt.

The Grand Théâtre de Luxembourg

1959 - 1964

Eustache Giorgetti & Fils is entrusted with the construction of the Grand Théâtre de Luxembourg. This major project puts the company's ingenuity and flexibility to the test. In order to circumvent the conflicts of interest between two Italian quarries, the sole suppliers of the Zebrato stones used in cladding the facade, Giorgetti built a dedicated cable car 2,000 m above sea level to transport the stones for the theatre.

Also, following the unexpected departure of the architect, along with the construction plans, the company had to finalise the project with a Luxembourg-City architect, using only the means at hand.

Paul Giorgetti


After the death of Paul Giorgetti, Félix Giorgetti assumes sole control of the company.

1972 -1974

The early 1970s heralded new ambitions for Félix Giorgetti as the company decides to expand its activities and become a property promoter. Faced with a difficulty to access public market, Félix Giorgetti decided to create his own opportunities and acquired its own land to upon which it could develop, build and sell housing.

In 1973, the Domaine de Gasperich came into being, a residential estate with 131 houses and 6 apartment blocks. This, along with another large housing project, the Mont Royal estate in Mamer, which would come to count more than 500 houses, launches Félix Giorgetti into this new activity.

This period was also one of the company’s most turbulent. With the oil crash of 1973 and subsequent crisis, there was little appetite for real estate. Consequently, many construction and real estate companies went out of business.

At that time Félix Giorgetti employed 400 people and, as a family company, refused to lay-off a single one. It even pre-financed the work of certain projects, including in Mamer, to keep them employed. A sound investment as, after several uncertain months with no sales, recovery finally began.

Economic activity resumed and, what is referred to as, the Splendid Twenty” began. The boom period from the mid-1980s to 2007, where the average annual growth rate of the Grand Duchy reached 5.3%.

Development work on the Saint-Esprit plateau, buildings and parking lot (1983-1986) and tunnel (1984-1988).

The company Eustache Giorgetti & fils, S.e.n.c. is dissolved and is taken over by the couple Félix Giorgetti and Jeanny Giorgetti-Theisen. They continue under the name Entreprise Félix Giorgetti.

Entreprise Félix Giorgetti then sets up a depot with a workshop on 6 ha of land in Leudelange, from where the management and maintenance of all Giorgetti vehicles, equipment and machinery takes place.

1996 - 1998

The Luxembourg government launches a call for tenders to construct housing on the Kirchberg, which at that time was simply an office district intersected by a motorway. The idea was to bring a little more life to the area after office hours. In association with other local partners, Félix Giorgetti is given the mandate for the construction of Avalon, a major residential complex. The first phase of this project involves the construction of 147 apartments. While construction works are in full swing, Félix Giorgetti assumes management of the development, taking its place as a real estate developer in Luxembourg.

The company takes this risk on the condition that it retains full ownership of the land. This proves to be an astute decision as the 27-storey building was at first leased to the European Parliament and later sold to the Luxembourg government.
