How to best place Addenda, Alternates, or As-Builts within the project?

How you organize these items would largely depend on your internal processes and workflow. One solution would be to draw the alternates as regular constructs in Project Navigator and then create special views for them.

If you want to present completely different plans/elevations to represent Alternates, you could use divisions in Project Navigator to represent them; when generating the view, you just need to include the appropriate division into the view.

In some cases you might also consider copying the project in Project Navigator and put the Alternates into the copied project. If you copy a project, however, you have two different file sets to maintain; the copied project does not retain any links to the original one.
