Workshops Sign
Kyburz' Office
Seems like there's all kind of crazy stuff back there. Maybe… maybe one day I'll get more ambitious.
― Pablo Navarro[src]

The Workshops are where engineers, mechanics, and maintenance workers perform upkeep on the machinery driving Rapture from the Hephaestus district.

Office of Supervisor KyburzEdit

Office of Supervisor Kyburz Sign

The room is heavily guarded by two turrets, but Pablo Navarro was in the habit of stealing money after coaxing the door code from a drunken Kyburz.[1] Despite Pablo's precautions, Kyburz became increasingly paranoid after discovering a potential spy[2] and booby-trapped his entire office with trap bolts.
