This maintenance building was located in the Sauropod Swamp area on Isla Nublar. In contains a lot of equipment for Park Rangers and veterinarians like Gerry Harding.

The barred entrance gate is large enough to drive a truck through. The bars have enough distance between them for a human to slip through. The gate is locked with a heavy padlock.[1]

It also contained bales of hay. Hay was needed as additional food for the dinosaurs in this area. At 5:00 AM bales of hay are automatically transported out of the building by a conveyor belt.[2]

Another gate in the building leads to an underground tunnel to the Raft Storage Maintenance Building at the edge of the logoon.[3]

Dr. Grant, Tim and Lex hid in this building from the recently-escaped dinosaurs of Jurassic Park and used it as a shelter while they slept. They use the hay in the building as a bed.[1] Dr. Grant tried their phone only to hear static. It is also where Lex met "Ralph" the Triceratops.
