Glazing Panels Edge Optimization

Hello, this is a structure column made of steel members with glass cladding on to the exterior of the column. the glass panels must be on offset 6 cm from the outer face of the steel which I have done.
my problem is that I can’t control the size of the glass panels that the edges meet each other, i want to be able to control the connection between panels. so later i would be able to have the accurate size of the panels for fabrication.

thank you for your time.

Some old code adjusted:

FIrst creating a mesh of your brep. Second, offsetting it. (No vertices offset) Now you can use the faces to create a brep or/and offset them inwards to get the right spacing between the glass panels etc. Hope this helps.
