If it's going to be 2ft depth (front to back) you could have 2x2x2 cubes at the top (being warmer) for the royals, maybe with a shelf in each one to give them added floor space.

The rest you could split into 8 sections of 2x2x12" which would give you a floor space of 4 sq.ft. for each corn which is only slightly less than a 36Lx18D viv. The height/shape of these might make it a bit difficult for any heating other than mats though.
This would be ok for the corns and royals up to adult size, unless any get really big. The boa could live in the spare 2x2x12" for a limited time but would need an upgrade sooner.

You'd have 5 levels which could be run by 3 stats I reckon, at a push.
A dimmer or pulse for the royals (best to have ceramics or red bulbs with them), then two mat stats - one for the middle two levels and one for the bottom two.
It would be slightly better with 4 mat stats for the bottom 4 levels though, especially if you have bulbs of any kind in the vivs.

The 4ft width is the problem - if you have space for a 6Lx6Hx2D you could make enough room for all of them regardless of what size they grow to.
If you're going to spend the money and time on doing something like this I reckon it would be better to think long term and try to make something that'll last more than just a couple of years.
But saying that - if you did build a smaller one then upgrade it in 2 years, you'd be left with 8 spare vivs to fill :D

With the space you've got it might be difficult making an attractive display of it, so rack/boxes may be the way to go.

You could always build a 4x2x2 for the boa then have a rack on top for the rest. Would do for a couple of years and when you eventually moved them all to vivs you'd have a rack ready for any hatchlings :D
