As well as being a local firm located not far from us, in System Solutions we found a partner with human dimensions. We were also receptive to their approach which is based on listening and truly wanting to understand the organisation and the processes their clients have in place, before offering up any solution at all,” recollects Christophe Dardenne. “Furthermore, a company like ours, when looking for a single partner to cover all of its IT needs, has to be able to count on a supplier that has the full range of skills needed to cover all IT roles, from the network to software licences, from architecture to security,” he concludes.
A standard-setter in the domain of civil engineering in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, Costantini is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year: construction, property promotion, general contracting, demolition, exterior building works and general electricity make up the range of activities offered by the company in Luxembourg, France and Belgium. Today, construction activities have taken over the road works that constituted the core business activities of Costantini. As of 2003, the company decided to develop its construction business in Luxembourg and, in 2004, Costantini opened its first agency in France, in Thionville. Since then, the company has considerably expanded its activities in the whole of France and can be found in Thionville, Nancy, Strasbourg, Reims and Paris. The group’s annual turnover is 110 million euros. Costantini employs 500 workers divided between Luxembourg and the greater North East of France.
A trained engineer, Christophe Dardenne joined Costantini almost twenty years ago. Following a Management Buy Out that took place in 2009, he entered the company’s shareholding structure. A member of the management committee and managing director, he oversees the commercial aspects of the company’s day-to-day running as well as the human, technical and IT resources.
