Constrain to set up one of the curves in center of elements

I am meshing a 3D geometry in ICEM and one of the main criteria for my model is that all of the control volumes of the specific zone should have their centroid on the surface. Could you please anyone has any idea to how to it in ICEM (mesh should be tetra)

I defined a surface (control volume) so that the surface that I need to be at the center is in the center of this zone. Then I am trying to mesh that zone first by hexa mesh in that case the curve is in the middle of the element but in tetra ?

tetra (or hexa)  would have a face on the surface. logically centroid of a cell can not be on surface.
