See attached. There are 2 folders showing 2 different methods of doing it. Just hide one and show the other. There's other ways to do it but I guess that depends on what you are looking for exactly. I prefer method 2 because you don't rely on sketches (let the surfaces do the work) and you can control things such as tangencies, etc.

Please see the attached image and file.
- I added a plane going thru the tips and root of the "U" at the elevated section of the sketch.
- I then used convert entities to create an elevated path.
- Composite curve to create a guide curve (a sketch with converted entities which have then used fit spline is probably better)
- Surface sweep
- Trimmed the extra surface protruding thru the bottom.
I hope this helps.
Cheers Rob, this gives me what I require. Was messing around with our approach and modeled anoher recess slightly different but with you construction sketches. Either option should work.
