Create "local" reference plane around one object (beam)

Create "local" reference plane around one object (beam)

I would like to parametrically control the length, width and depth of reference planes so i can create localized ref. planes for individual elements (beams, columns, floors, walls). I need to link the ref. plane's borders to concrete element dimensions.

How to create local ref. plane around a single element.png

For loadable families maybe i can do it inside the family, but for system families like walls and floors i don't know how. Such "internal" reference planes should be very useful as rebar constraints e.g. for wall intersections with stronger rebars, for multiple stirrup sets with various spacings, for overlapping rebars at certain intervals or certain gaps, etc.
