Are you using 36/36 rims, or 32/40 rims? I built up a 40 hole S5 hub (same size as an AW) in a CR18, 4-cross, and I believe I used 280mm spokes. 3 cross would be 270mm. I used a Dynohub for the front, so I'm afraid I can't help you there.
Update: I found my spoke order. 578 ERD, I used 281mm spokes--Spocalc gave me a value of 280.7mm. 3 cross would be 271.
