Placing Beta copies of business objects in .NET

I have shared hosting and have a beta copy of my site in the /beta directory, with folder organization mirroring the main site. How do I test a beta version of a business object so the beta code finds it but not the main code? If I place it in the /bin directory off the root, it may break the main site, whereas if I place it anywhere else it isn't found. I realize there is probably some hack using <assemblies> in web.config but I am looking for a simpler solution, Any ideas?
