How to shift this beam up 125mm?

Hi everyone!


I'm sorry if I posted this in the wrong section. Okay, so I've tried doing this 1,276,294 different ways but it is not working! My professor specified this beam that we needed to draw needed to have the centroid of the weldment profile on the origin. I cannot get this to work. No matter what I do, the origin is centered in the middle of the beam in the z-direction, except for it's at the top of the beam instead if the middle of the beam in the y-direction. If this explanation doesn't make sense, please see the screenshots below.


So, what I'm hoping I can do is somehow just shift the entire beam up (in the y-direction) by 125mm somehow as the weldment profile is 50mm (z-direction) X 250m (y-direction). Do any of you have any suggestions on how I can do this?


Thank you for any help you may provide!

Here's a Zoomed-In Shot of the Origin - I just want to shift the entire beam up in the y-direction by 125mm
