The simple answer to this question is no. For Kant morality is possible because human reason provides access to the necessary conditions of human understanding. These necessary conditions are not conventions in the sense of being true only contingently, or based on intersubjective agreement; rather, the conditions of morality are a reflection of the human condition vis a vis the requirements for our understanding. Of course, most contemporary followers of Kant, notably John Rawls, offer a version of ethical reality based on a social construction.
