It's called a "hush house." (see link). It is an enclosed, noise suppressed, aircraft jet engine facility for testing installed or uninstalled jet engines under actual load conditions. A hush house is wide enough to accommodate an entire aircraft so that the engine can be run while installed in the aircraft. Uninstalled engines secured to thrust frames can also be tested in most hush houses.

The air intake and exhaust systems of indoor test cells and hush houses are designed to optimize the engine air flows, and to discharge the cooled jet exhaust through a vertical stack. The intake and exhaust systems have silencers to reduce noise transmitted to the surrounding outdoor area.
