The word "works" is uncountable noun, so when I construct a sentence, do I say "The works is not extensive" or "The works are not extensive"?

Here, we have to say The works are not extensive.

"Works" is always plural in the context of engineering works,for example in the sentences:
The works on the M4 are dreadful.
He came home tired from the steelworks every night.
