Hello, Everyone.

I'm here again!

I need to construct a build like the one in the picture. They need to start within a front setback of 5.9 meters and extrude three meters. Then i need to extrude the next two floors (10 meters) without any setbacks. The remaining floors need back setback of 5 meters, a front setback of 2 meters and side setback of 1.5 meters. This information of how many floors that those buildings are going to have is defined using the my basic rule that considers setbacks, occupancy rate and coefficient of utilization. I have to put some discont areas (about 27-31% of the total area of the building). At this moment, i don't know how to do it...
I tried to:

Represent the building diagram as a rectangular footprint shape.

Extrude the shape upwards to max height.

Split in Y direction (vertically, as CE uses Y-up, not Z-up) into:

1) bottom level with 5.9m setback.

2) middle levels that use entire footpring

3) top level with 5m stepback.

Split bottom level in either X or Z direction, with absolute split amount of 5.9 sent to NIL, and remainder of split is the ground floor mass/volume.

But it's still not working... Any ideas?
