The InGen compound is the name that is given inJurassic Park III to a massive complex of buildings thatInGen has built on Isla Sorna. As seen in the film, the buildings of the compound were once devoted to breedingand parenting Dinosaurs.

The InGen compound should not be confused with theWorker Village, which was designated to accommodate the InGen workers.




In Jurassic Park III, the InGen Compound is located at a different location than the worker village from The Lost World: Jurassic Park, namely at the central western side of Isla Sorna. If the town was the brains of Isla Sorna then the Embryonics, Administration, and Laboratories Compound area would be the beating heart and InGen‘s factory floor. This facility was where dinosaurs were cloned, hatched, studied, and eventually observed in the incubation, testing, and dinosaur kennel areas before going to points unknown. Arranged like a factory floor setting, the Embryonics Administration gives the appearance of being akin to an assembly line for InGen’s dinosaurs for the Jurassic Park project.



The entrance to the main facility can be found at the Embryonics Administration facility, adjacent to the breeding and hatching facility. Preceded by a heavily overgrown parking lot that contained the battered hulks of vehicles once utilized by InGen on the island, the landscaping around the front has been heavily overgrown after eight years of lacking human maintenance. The ferns that had adorned the now mold and vine encrusted InGen sign that was the centerpiece to the parking lot have grown wild, and the shrubbery that lined the front of the building now threatens to spill over it’s placement. Debris lays strewn across the parking lot, and the portico that graced the top of the entrance now sags ominously.


Inside the lobby, computers lay dormant and encrusted with mold over what was once a fine reception desk. The power here no longer works, as evidence by the lack of a dial tone when Amanda Kirby tried a phone that laid on the desk. Behind the desk was the InGen technologies logo, vines slowly creeping over it. Holes in the roof above had allowed puddles of water into the room, and vines hung from the ceiling of the room. Beyond this was a hallway that, presumably, led to other unseen areas of the Embryonics Administration center. This hallway also leads to the production facility, where the dinosaurs were produced. Located somewhere in an “S-curve” of the hallway is a quartet of vending machines that held snacks. At least one of the machines had a glass front, and another held plastic. There is also a water dispenser in the center of the row.

Production FloorEdit

A long, 3-story, rectangular structure served as the factory floor to the entire operation. The entire floor held a long parallel row of incubators, each holding nine eggs. These incubators were intersected by numerous gigantic, robotic arms that hung from the ceiling on a track, their exact function and how they operated can be only speculated. The incubators were flanked on the outside by rows of embryonic tubes, where InGen could visually watch the progression of the growth of their dinos, and where they could spot deformities that allowed for them to perfect their cloning process. The entire ground level could be watched over by a pair of catwalks that intersected at various points over the floor. By 2001, the entire floor had been layered in a a thick covering of dust, and the robotic arms were stalled and rusted. Some dinosaur eggs had fallen to the floor to lye with the leaves that cluttered there. The water inside embryonic tubes had turned green from the lack of proper oxygen flow, and any dinosaur embryos that had been inside have rotted. Some tubes had been broken open, and their contents now empty.



Their precise location within the Compound is unknown, but most likely in the same facility as the production and Embryonics Administration, but this is where the juveniles dinosaurs would have been kept to grow until either their placement into Jurassic Park on Isla Nublar, or to places unknown. Having several rows of small cages that apparently would have been padded with hay, the young animals could be nourished with what seems to have been enlarged versions of the same type of water bottle that one would use to give hamsters water with, although this seems to be a feature of only the smaller cages.

Jurassic Park Adventures: SurvivorEdit

In the novella Jurassic Park Adventures: Survivor Eric Kirby seeks shelter in the Compound for the first weeks of his stay on the island.

Behind the ScenesEdit

During production of Jurassic Park III, exterior shots of the compound and interior shots of the Embryonics Administration lobby were filmed on the same back lot which stood for the Site B Village in The Lost World: Jurassic Park. In fact, the Operations Building set was merely re-dressed to create the facade and lobby of the Embryonics Administration building.

As of 2016, the set still exists on the Universal Studios Hollywood backlot, adjacent to the War of the Worldsand Whoville sets, although the entire structure has collapsed in upon itself.
