McClure Associates (ACMA), one of the industry’s premier naval architecture and engineering firms, announced today that it has formed a professional alliance with Iceberg Project Services (IPS) (www.icebergps.com). When supplemental support is required, ACMA will provide engineering services to IPS and IPS will provide ACMA project management assistance.
