How to create a 250GB HFS+ partition plus free space only

Hello, I am not an expert with DS and would like to automate partitioning the target drive at the beginning of a workflow so it has a fixed size and the remaining space would be "free".
My goal is reducing the disk size available to users, eg: MacPro with 640 GB disk would only show 250 GB HFS partition.
I noticed the "partitioning a disk" task can only be used to set % and not sizes and I could not find a way to leave the extra free space.
From what I have read, probably the only way would be using a script with diskutil command, but I would need help on that, unless there's an easier way.
Many thanks for your help!
