Tradition, commitment, innovation
Committed men and women, deeply-rooted family values and a company culture based on trust. These are the factors that have made CDCL one of the leading players in the construction sector in Luxembourg in just a few decades.
"Our history has been built up around the notion of trust. Trust in our own ability and the trust that we inspire in others. Trust based on shared values that are also our guidelines for action."
Today, the company has some 500 employees whose experience and versatility allow CDCL to take on the most ambitious technical challenges. Whether its new-builds, demolition and transformation of buildings and infrastructures and operational structures, the company has a wealth of wide-ranging know-how that includes property development.
"We base our work on a policy that encourages our employees to demonstrate commitment, take responsibility and enjoy their results achieved. We also encourage employees to share their know-how."
CDCL strives to be a highly valued and trusted partner. In this context, the projects undertaken always entail a privileged relationship with the client and all actors involved.
"We use all our know-how, experience, intelligence and energy to serve our clients and partners and provide them with new, innovative and financially and socially effective solutions."
Jean-Marc Kieffer – Managing Director
What CDCL offers
Continuous support, from upstream to downstream, whatever the complexity of the project.
We keep to the budget
Continuous financial monitoring of the management of our sites.
We keep to the plans
Analysis, planning, implementation and monitoring in close collaboration with the client.
The client is our partner, at every level and at every stage in the project.
Constantly striving for excellence
We constantly re-assess and adapt our methods and processes to meet our client’s needs.
Our work is our passion, our people are our strength. We have trained teams whose expertise and know-how can be seen every day on our sites and through the structures we build. They work with dedication and professionalism to execute your building projects, however ambitious.
Structural work activities i.e. building, civil engineering, roads and utilities, date back to CDCL’s roots and form part of the company’s core business. However, CDCL has been diversifying for over 30 years now and has developed its 'all trades' activities offering our clients total management of their projects. This ranges from analysing your needs and drawing up project descriptions (worksheets) to all-inclusive completion and after-sales services provided throughout the guarantee period and beyond.
Every project submitted to us is run by a works manager and/or project leader who take(s) full responsibility in terms of deadlines, quality and cost. On the site, a manager (works supervisor or site manager) oversees the work done by the production workforce, which is split into teams of 10 to 12 people.
The CDCL production workforce specialising in structural works is led by our team leaders.
For 'all trades' projects, CDCL subcontracts activities other than structural works to its network of efficient and dependable partners.
CDCL regularly inspects and monitors the work being carried out, right up until the turnkey delivery of the structure.
All projects are executed with the assistance of CDL's support services. Offsite from our head office: machinery and truck logistics (from our Bertrange depot), equipment and reinforcements (from our Leudelange depot); Onsite at our head office: Studies and Methods.
