    not a max user but in the package i use you could do this 1 of 2 ways (prob more) the first would be to assign all the materials to the wall and then turn off tiling and play with the mapping of the materialuntill the desired result is achieved, the second would be to split the wall into seperate faces and assign a material into each selection to achieve the result, i guess the thrid option would be to manually model each section seperatly

    I would draw up thw walls in AutoCAD under a separte layer and attach the required materials to these. One layer for the bottom, one for the middle and one for the top.

    It would mean that you have 3 separte objects to a wall but as long as they are placed together correctly then it will work fine.
