    To be carried...CF405A is a nonfinite clause acting as an adjective modifying works. The full-form equivalent is: ...the works [that are] to be carried out...

    Be to is a form of future as viewed fact: We are to begin the project in November. He is to be married in Vienna.

    To change your sentence, choose an appropriate future form:

    We wish to draw your attention to the works that will be carried out...
