Inauguration of school complex in Mersch

The inauguration of two high schools, Lycée Ermesinde (LEM) and LTPES (technical college for educational and social professions) took place on Friday 3 February 2012, attended by Claude Wiseler, the sustainable development and infrastructures minister, and Mady Delvaux-Stehres, the national education minister.

This project is the first public-private partnership of its kind. It has been carried out by the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and the GTK SARL group, which consists of Félix Giorgetti SARL and a+p kieffer omnnitec SARL.

The complex is located on a site covering around 6.6 hectares (16.3 acres), bordered to the south by the traffic-calmed zone Rue de la Gare, to the west by a cycle path along the railway line and to the east by the Alzette River. Being so close to Mersch railway station, the complex is easily accessible via public transport and the new pedestrian level crossing.

Approximately 1km from the complex is Mersch town centre, with its infrastructures for local and regional authorities.

The school campus consists of two high schools that can accommodate 1,600 pupils and satisfies the following requirements: welcoming architecture, sustainable construction, light and airy spaces, direct lines of communication between the various areas and vast outdoor spaces.

The space is divided up as follows:

  • Usable surface area: approx. 25,276m2
  • Total gross volume: approx. 188,000m3
  • Car parks: 200 spaces
  • School capacity: approx. 1,600 students (around 700 for LEM and 900 for LTPES)
  • Residential capacity: 90 students and 6 teachers
