replace multiple faces with multiple faces.

Are there any replace to multiple faces custom features, or extend to a container type thing? Think of a spiral stair, rising inside a square tower, and the treads and risers need to extend to the extents of the bounding walls. I have had this type of problem a couple of times in a range of situations, and resorted to oversizing and Boolean>remove, or over sizing and splitting parts and removing one side.  But when the design is parametric, and parts are added or fall in differnt positions, this falls over. 
I'm sure I'm missing a simple trick.... maybe a tool I don't use much, like replace face, only more powerful.
Thanks
