8 / January / 2019

Nashville, Tenn. - Walk Bike Nashville recently named the Nashville office of Barge Design Solutions their 2018 Business of the Year. The presentation took place at the organization’s annual celebration in December.

Each year, Walk Bike Nashville receives nominations from its membership to recognize individuals and organizations that contribute to walk and bike advocacy. Finalists were then voted on by Walk Bike Nashville staff and board of directors.

Barge Design Solutions’ Nashville office supports active transportation through its advocacy efforts for local transit, hosting numerous Walk Bike Nashville events, and by providing in-house bike racks and shower/locker rooms for employees. In 2018, the office was named a “Silver” Level Bicycle Friendly Business by the League of American Bicyclists.

Walk Bike Nashville promotes area-wide active transportation with a mix of educational programs, engagement events and services, and grassroots advocacy efforts. The organization’s mission is aimed at working to “build a more walkable, bikeable, and liveable Nashville.”
