integrated/self-contained technical facility
Explanation:
Zblokowany in the sense that it is all in one place, not scattered all over the site, hence integrated or self-contained.

I was also wondering whether "a compact technical facility" would also convey the sense.

Obiekt inżynieryjny is clearly a facility. Someone engineered it (designed and built it), but it serves technical purposes. Engineered facility does not sound right to me; engineering facility sounds even worse and is quite pretentious for a car wash.
