Take a look at the functions AppendColumns and AppendRows in the 
package LinearAlgebra`MatrixManipulation`. Or if you prefer to 
"roll your own"

Joining A, B first can be done by




Similarly with C,D

Then the two intermediate matrices can be combined using either 
Join or Append to get the desired result.
