KSG Publications

KSG is committed to promoting green building and market transformation. Over the years, Abe Kruger has contributed to numerous articles. Here is a sampling of his writings.

Green Building: Principles and Practices in Residential Construction is the first textbook on the subject.


Abe Kruger and Carl Seville are the authors of Green Building: Principles and Practices in Residential Construction. Green Building provides a current, comprehensive guide to this exciting, emerging field. From core concepts to innovative applications of cutting-edge technology and the latest industry trends, this text offers an in-depth introduction to the construction of “green” homes. Unlike many texts that adopt a product-oriented approach, this book emphasizes the crucial planning, processes, and execution methods necessary for effective, environmentally sound construction. This text demonstrates that Earth-friendly products and energy-efficient materials take planning in order to make a building truly green. This visionary text helps students and professionals develop the knowledge and skills to “think green” from start to finish, empowering and inspiring them to build truly sustainable homes.


The May/June issue feature the article Wasting Energy or Catching Fire by Abe Kruger about the impact of fire sprinklers on the building envelope.
