Chris,

b = Range[20];
b1 = Partition[b, Length[b]/2]
b2 = Transpose[Partition[#, 2]] & /@ b1
Flatten[b2, 1]
{{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10}, {11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20}}
{{{1, 3, 5, 7, 9}, {2, 4, 6, 8, 10}}, {{11, 13, 15, 17, 19}, {12, 14, 16,
18,
      20}}}
{{1, 3, 5, 7, 9}, {2, 4, 6, 8, 10}, {11, 13, 15, 17, 19}, {12, 14, 16, 18,
    20}}
