CFL new headquarters

CFL has chosen the joint venture Félix Giorgetti, CDCL and Poeckes to build its new head office, which will accommodate up to 1,200 employees.

A project with a very interesting architectural and environmental concept that echoes the values of our company. CFL opted for a partial demolition of the old building, which dates from the 1950s, while preserving elements typical of the architecture of the period, such as the main façades overlooking Place de la Gare, the central core, the entrance staircase and the mosaic mural in the entrance hall.

The new building will also boast superior energy performance and is aiming for BREEAM Excellent certification.

24,000 m2


From 3,5 to 7 m

Widening of the rue du Chemin de fer

Up to 1,200


A large-scale project

The joint venture Félix Giorgetti, CDCL and Poeckes was chosen by Chemins de fer luxembourgeois to build its new 24,000 m2 head office.

It was also awarded the contract to install the living quarters, as well as cleaning out the old building and stabilising its façades.

Completion of this major project is scheduled for 2026.

Preparatory work

As part of the construction of the new CFL headquarters, our teams widened the Rue du Chemin de Fer.

Nestled between the exit of the Fort Neipperg car park and the platforms of Central Station, the rue du Chemin de Fer will play a very important role in the construction of the new CFL headquarters. It will indeed be the entry point to the site. The road is being widened in two stages, with the first part completed in July 2023. The work involved widening the road and creating an access ramp to allow machinery to reach the site several metres below. The second phase will take place at the end of 2026, when the building is handed over and the ramp becomes an access point for emergency services.

From 3.5 to 7 m wide

The challenge lies in the narrowness of the site, between the car park exit at the top and the station platforms at the bottom. To maintain one-way traffic, an impressive gantry crane was installed, with a 60 m long jib and a hook height of 36 m. Our teams demolished the stairs leading down to a platform, as well as part of the platform and the retaining wall. New foundations were laid to build a new retaining wall, making it possible to extend the road from 3.5 to 7 m in width. The new road rests on 6 m-high mews, beams, predales and slabs cast on site. It is bordered by prefabricated cornices. The asphalt was laid by our partner Julien Cajot.
