Energy Efficiency made Simple

Melon North

Introducing Melon North, an exciting development in West Philadelphia that marks The Sheward Partnership’s debut into Passive House construction. With a strong commitment to achieving exceptional airtightness and insulation, they have partnered with Build SMART and our innovative E-Wall envelope system. This collaboration ensures that future residents will experience a range of unparalleled benefits within their homes.

Melon North offers a sustainable living experience, where reduced energy bills are a reality. Through the meticulous construction and advanced insulation techniques, residents can enjoy optimal energy efficiency, resulting in significant cost savings. The Passive House design also guarantees a comfortable interior environment with a quiet and draft-free atmosphere.

In addition to energy efficiency, Melon North prioritizes the health and well-being of its residents. The inclusion of Build SMART’s E-Wall envelope system ensures continuous 100% filtered fresh air circulation throughout the building. This promotes a healthy living environment, free from pollutants and allergens, contributing to improved respiratory health and overall well-being.

Melon North is a testament to The Sheward Partnership’s commitment to sustainable and high-performance design. You can delve deeper into this pioneering project and explore how the collaboration with Build SMART has enabled the realization of their vision for a sustainable and comfortable living space.
